c. Choosing who to walk with.
– Luke our guide;
– His gospel, our map;
– Luke introduces us to Jesus and introduce Jesus to us.
Drawing 1a. In the drawing above, you have two choices. Choice no 1 is what we want to do. Choice no 2 is want we have to do. Write in the orientation poll what you would like to do and what you have to do. Drawing 1b. I went for a walk or I just started a new day. The drawing above has no sky. Draw above the girl what could describe how you feel at the moment. Butterflies or hearts for love. Sun for warmth. Birds for forgiveness. Stars for hope. The moon for meditation. Clouds of sadness. Leaves that fall for loneliness and forgetfulness, etc. If you use signs other than those shown here, explain them.
Completing the drawings is personal. Keep each drawing to end the course. The whole process will make sense. You don’t need to share with anyone what you did with the drawings. They can be helpful in better understanding our relationship with Jesus and understanding the Holy Scriptures.

II. The following materials are intended for the group leader, in order to prepare the meeting.
– of the places and about places;
– of the people and about people;
– about gods and God.
– Christian and disciple of Paul;
– storyteller and writer – guide.
The leader should prepare a presentation of Luke and his gospel, using resources, but adapting them for o Bible Study group. It is very important that the leader does not forget that the purpose is not to present information, but to understand the message of Scripture in context. The information should help to understand the message, without putting it in a secondary place.
Within the time available, the leader may suggest the following:
– Who spoke to you for the first time about Jesus or where did you first hear about him?
– When you received your first Bible?
– When did you start reading the Bible, alone not at church or in a group?
